The 'blockdev-create' QMP command was introduced as experimental
feature in commit b0292b851b8, using the assert() debug call.
It got promoted to 'stable' command in 3fb588a0f2c, but the
assert call was not removed.

Some block drivers are optional, and bdrv_find_format() might
return a NULL value, triggering the assertion.

Stable code is not expected to abort, so return an error instead.

This is easily reproducible when libnfs is not installed:

  module support    no
  Block whitelist (rw)
  Block whitelist (ro)
  libiscsi support  yes
  libnfs support    no

Start QEMU:

  $ qemu-system-x86_64 -S -qmp unix:/tmp/qemu.qmp,server,nowait

Send the 'blockdev-create' with the 'nfs' driver:

  $ ( cat << 'EOF'
  {'execute': 'qmp_capabilities'}
  {'execute': 'blockdev-create', 'arguments': {'job-id': 'x', 'options': {'size': 0, 'driver': 'nfs', 'location': {'path': '/', 'server': {'host': '::1', 'type': 'inet'}}}}, 'id': 'x'}
  ) | socat STDIO UNIX:/tmp/qemu.qmp
  {"QMP": {"version": {"qemu": {"micro": 50, "minor": 1, "major": 4}, "package": "v4.1.0-733-g89ea03a7dc"}, "capabilities": ["oob"]}}
  {"return": {}}

QEMU crashes:

  $ gdb qemu-system-x86_64 core
  Program received signal SIGSEGV, Segmentation fault.

With this patch applied, QEMU returns a QMP error:
